I guess that I am a poet and did not know it.

Friend to all homeless Enfields and Hoadie too.

I will get off my wooden ammo box and shut up.

Just one. An H-50 "Jungle Pack" containing a sealed tin H.29 filled with Mk7 ball in a belt for the Vickers.

Just lucky I guess.
If I split it up You can have the"goodies". The 250 rd belt for a Vickers, the spam can & the box for a pittance, but I think the shipping will be awful?

I can use the 250 rounds of ammo, but I'm not a collector & I don't have a Vickers  so I figure the belt & boxes could go to one. I tried trading it as a complete set, just for a 1:1 on ammo but no one was interested, the best offer I got was for 100rounds of HXP!

Why on Earth would I give away 250 rounds to get 100 back? Admittedly I could reload the HXP, but 250 for 100 is not a good deal where I cone from.

i agree - not a good deal - if i had 250 rounds to part with i would be tempted , 

simon , what have you got i might be in for a couple depending on vintage and size ,

I had (have) two of those wooden boxes that came packaged in a steel ammo case. Brown and British. Ammo long gone, but the steel ammo box is under the bench somewhere. The empty wooden boxes should still be in there. No use for them, but in the true spirit of a hoarder, err, I mean collector, I hate to throw things away, I figured that it might come in useful one day for something or someone.

I'll pull it out in the daylight and take pics. I dont want much for them but it is good trading material.

i understand wish i had more trading material these days but my good sources dried up a few years back - we are getting old and we no longer have the available sourses we once had - i miss some , others not so much , i hope those i knew that are facing hardship get thru it OK i wish them well , 

we have mutual friends and have done business so i hope we agree on wishing all well in life , i very much respect your work and would be proud to own one of your enfield carbines if ever the opportunity arises
